Sony’s new Xperia smartphones have a fingerprint sensor that actually works in the U.S. this time.

The Sony mobile division is at CES 2018 and they’ve taken the wraps off three new Xperia smartphones: the Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra, and the Xperia L2. These new devices from Sony will look familiar as the company’s design language hasn’t changed a whole lot with this line of phones. The phones are a bit more curved and Sony has moved the fingerprint sensor to the rear. Speaking of fingerprint sensors, according to Sony, they will work in the United States.

Here are some key selling features and points on these new devices from Sony:

  • Xperia XA2 and large-screen Xperia XA2 Ultra feature 23MP main camera, 8MP 120-degree super-wide-angle front-facing camera (plus second 16 MP front camera on Xperia XA2 Ultra), and a range of upgrades in a sleek, borderless design
  • Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra come equipped with Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 630 processor platform
  • Xperia L2 also announced, with a 5.5” HD display, high-capacity battery and 8MP 120-degree super-wide-angle front camera
  • All three devices feature new, always-on fingerprint sensor
  • Xperia XA2 and large-screen Xperia XA2 Ultra – Sony’s renowned borderless display smartphones – add 120-degree super-wide-angle lens front camera and a broad range of performance upgrades to deliver more ways to capture and share life moments with ease.
  • Xperia L2 is a 5.5-inch borderless display smartphone with 120- degree super-wide-angle lens front camera, all-new metallic design, and always-on fingerprint sensor.
  • Available in Black, Gold, and Pink

“Our super mid-range product strategy started out as an exciting new idea based on bringing bold technologies to this section of the market in the most accessible way possible,” said Hideyuki Furumi, EVP, Global Sales & Marketing, at Sony Mobile Communications. “Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are no different, with leading front camera technology first seen in our flagship XZ line. We’re targeting 2018 as a breakthrough year, and look forward to showcasing further innovations across the entire Xperia portfolio over the coming months.”

Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra take the Sony borderless smartphone series to new heights by adding a host of enhancements that make these Full HD screen devices stand out even further from the competition. Both smartphones feature a high-resolution 23MP main camera upgraded with 4K video recording and 120fps slow-motion video capture (for high resolution and creative video shots) and much improved low-light sensitivity at ISO 12800 for capturing higher quality photos in dark or indoor conditions.
